Rain Announces Powerful Laptop For 3D and Video Production

Rain has released the new LiveBook V, a true high-performance laptop designed for 3D arts and video editing. Rain Computers, designer of bespoke audio and visual workstations for notables including Conan O'Brien, Public Enemy, Cirque du Soliel and the US Olympic Committee, prides itself on creating the most powerful and stable platform for mission critical content creation.

LiveBook V (the V is for visual) includes some of the most advanced technology available. With an eye toward professional visual production, the balanced component architecture includes the latest Intel Core i7 quad-core processors up to 3GHz (3.9GHz if you count Turbo Boost), room for an astounding 32 gigabytes of 1600 MHz dual-channel memory, and a choice of NVIDIA GeForce GTX or Quadro workstation-class graphics. And, since 3D and video projects are as hungry for storage space as they are for bandwidth, LiveBook V ships standard with both a solid state drive (SSD) and a high-speed mechanical hard drive. More storage space can be added via an mSATA SSD for a total of up to 1.5 terabytes.

NVIDIA Working on Second GK110-based GeForce Graphics Card for Summer

NVIDIA may decisively hold on to the single-GPU performance lead, with its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, but at roughly $1000, it could attract a very small market. According to a SweClockers report, NVIDIA is looking to woo gamers just ahead of Summer with the second GK110-based GeForce GTX graphics card. Similar in specifications to the fabled Quadro K6000, the new SKU could feature 13 out of 15 streaming multiprocessors on the GK110 silicon, working out to 2,496 CUDA cores, 208 texture memory units, a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface holding 5 GB of memory, and 40 ROPs. Given that there's a deep ravine between the ~$450 GeForce GTX 680 and ~$1000 GTX Titan, NVIDIA could pick a price-point in the middle. The report claims the new SKU could launch some time between July and August, 2013.

NVIDIA Readies Second GK110-based SKU

Following the launch of its consumer-oriented GeForce GTX Titan, NVIDIA is planning its second graphics card based on the 28 nm GK110 silicon, this one for professionals, and featuring in the Quadro family. Likely bearing the model name Quadro K6000, the card is expected to feature 13 of the GK110's 15 streaming multiprocessors (SMXs), which work out to 2,496 CUDA cores, 208 TMUs, 40 ROPs, and a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, likely holding 5 GB of memory. The configuration could be just about enough for 1 TFLOP/s double-precision floating-point performance, and could hence offer an upgrade over Fermi-based Quadro 6000.

NVIDIA Sets New Standard for Workstation Performance and Reliability

NVIDIA today unveiled a range of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics products that offer unprecedented workstation performance and capabilities for professionals in manufacturing, engineering, medical, architectural, and media and entertainment companies.

"With NVIDIA Kepler GPUs, we can create fully ray-trace rendered images of a bike before we actually build it," said Nick Schoeps, senior engineer at MotoCzysz, a Portland, Ore., engineering firm that designs, builds and races custom electric motorcycles. "Previously we'd rely only on still renders or low-fidelity motion during design reviews. With Quadro Kepler, we can work with highest quality settings always on. That's a huge advantage and something we hadn't been able to do before."

EK Unveils World's First Water Cooling Solution for NVIDIA Quadro K5000

GIGABYTE Announces New Server and Workstation Motherboards

GIGABYTE is proud to announce two new models of workstation motherboards and one new model dedicated to mission critical server applications. All of them being based on the Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 product family, these new models are designed to answer demanding needs for computing resources across various usage models, form factors and scales. While these products have been naturally thought for scenarios requiring heavy computing power through GPUs or GPGPU / co-processors cards, from CAD/CAE to rendering, simulation and modeling, their most notable advantage relies in their unique memory performance capability. GIGABYTE motherboards support DDR3-1600 MHz speeds with 16 GB 1.35V RDIMMs.

Achieved through GIGABYTE's capabilities in design, PCB layout and BIOS fine-tuning, this feature will be most appreciated in the many workstation applications where improvements in memory frequency result in speeding up the user's productivity and in all the industries relying on server applications where each incremental improvement in memory performance results in significant benefits, such as in finance.

"Steady as She Goes" for the Workstation Market in Q4'11, Reports Jon Peddie Research

The workstation market proceeded ahead in the fourth quarter of 2011, completing a long climb back from the 2009 depths of the global economic recession that had slashed its shipments by over 40 percent. But that fourth quarter advance was more a case of "steady as she goes" than "full speed ahead", reports Jon Peddie Research senior analyst Alex Herrera.

The leading market research firm has completed its data collection and analysis of results from the quarter, and finds Q4 followed the same basic storyline Herrera had been laying out over the previous few quarters. The market has not only fully recovered from the recession, it's showing continued stability and some undeniable signs of strength. But at the same time, there remain scattered pockets of concern, as the market has yet to resume the pace of growth it sustained back in the years 2005 through 2008.
